Carnivore

Decades be­fore is­sues of ‘toxic mas­culin­ity’ were cur­dling the in­ter­net, Pete Steele was set­ting out to tram­ple over lib­eral sen­si­bil­i­ties with his New York City power trio of postapoc­a­lypse cave­men. Carnivore’s 1985 de­but was a fear­somely sex­u­alised take on thrash, hard­core, crust and doom – sounds that were just tak­ing off in this fran­tic year, when ev­ery kind of ex­treme metal was sud­denly spurt­ing at once out of the same hole. Belched out of the year’s arse-end, Carnivore rep­re­sented a sem­i­nal com­ing to­gether of in­cip­i­ent ex­trem­i­ties with a colos­sal force of per­son­al­ity; Pete’s slaver­ing de­liv­ery on the likes of Male

Supremacy, Ar­maged­don and God Is Dead takes the breath away to this day.
